Felted Woman's hat in pale blue grey tones with a sea inspiration.

Have you ever been to the seaside right after a storm? Remember how the colors were muted, yet glowed with a strange power? This millinery creation, a bit of wearable art, was inspired by a walk in the rain along one of north Norfolk’s amazing beaches – Thornham.

The color of this handcrafted, felted hat is quite subtle- blues, greys, white and bits of yellow ochre. It is like an impressionist painting of the feeling of the sea, at least the cold sea here. The natural Merino sheep’s wool is felted onto a lightweight cotton fabric, which makes this an extra light felt hat, perfect for the warmer months.

The shape of the hat undulates like an exotic sea shell, curving round and round. It is a particularly flattering hat, with its asymmetrical brim and upcurved back, which flips up like the tail of a happy fish. The edge has millinery wire which is then covered with matching pale lemon, silk dupioni fabric. All hand sewn of course.

The inside has a headsize band of cream colored millinery grosgrain. Three tiny, metal wig clips are hand sewn onto the grosgrain. These fellows really can hold a hat on. Much better than clips or bobbie pins! The clips allow You to angle and turn the hat what is most Flattering.

It is a hat that should fit most heads because it perches.
Head size range of 22- 23 inches (55.88– 58.4 cm).

The hat has a 11 ½ inch (39.2 cm) diameter across its widest point.

Care instructions: this particular hat has millinery wire sewn onto its edge to hold its shape and therefore should not be washed. However, not to worry about rain -- a light rain should be fine, as felt is water resistant, along with being dirt resistant.

Frequently asked questions about FeltHappiness

Head size:
Every head has its own unique size and shape which can be measured with a flexible tape measure, or even a piece of string.

Take the tape measure and encircle your head, just above top of ears. Make sure that the tape measure goes over that small bump at the back of your head. Please don't pull it tightly. Leave a little 'ease' so that one finger can fit under the tape. An ear to ear measure can be helpful too.

Measure 3 times: it is surprising how it can vary!
Inches or centimetres is fine.
